    Read up on how to clip their wings.  You are only have the feathers trimmed to limit full flight.  You do not want to cut the long feathers on the end.   

    Look for an online demo on it before attempting to do it yourself.

    I had budgies for years and I clipped their wings. You have to be careful that you only clip the wings a short amount or you will cut them to the quick and cause bleeding. You only have to keep clipping them until they're hand trained or if you want to make sure they won't fly outside. The wings don't have to be clipped until enough new feathers grow in (the old clipped ones will eventually fall out).
